ITDA - IHMP Certification Programs (ALL)

ITDA-IHMP Certifications Overview (All levels)

We have been training and certifying divers since 1998 beginning with Technical Diving as the ETDA European Technical Diving Agency and then being asked by our instructors, trainers and course directors to develop recreational -
Sports Scuba certifications in diving back in 2005.

And from 2007 we expanded into the Occupational diving market with "Construction diving" and "Public Safety Diving / UW Welding and Professional Rescue" programs which were developed with and for the Malaysian Federal Fire and Rescue Services.
These courses are still running today... With our Partners in Malaysia.

So a big warm welcome from ITDA HQ Management to our full range of course programs...Many of our certification programs have junior levels from 8 years to 15 years old.  For Advanced Technical Diving and Professional levels minimum age is 18 Years.
